The HOTSHOT programme is designed for young players. The Hotshot ladder is designed for player’s to start with simple racket skills and build upon these skills, right the way through to advanced skills to progress up the ladder. After achieving a skill a certificate will be presented to the child. The programme encourages each player to progress their skills set so they can climb up the HOTSHOT ladder. You must work your way through the skills from 1 all the way up to 20. Only players in Tom’s junior programmes are able to be rewarded when a skill is successfully completed in front of Tom and a certificate will then be issued.
